The intensity of T5HOs is the reason that I still run a lot of PC fixtures. PC fixtures provide a lower-medium spectrum and dont force you to inject CO2.
If you look on Ebay you could find a single bulb T5HO fixture or a T5NO fixture for pretty inexpensive. You could also probably get away with a cheap Odyssea T5HO...their ballasts, bulbs, and reflectors are junk so the intensity is nowhere near a Current fixture.
